Star City is one of the most exciting, unique and fun-filled amusement theme parks in the Philippines. Basically a family-oriented 35,000 square meter, the amusement is just beside Folk Arts Theater and next to the popular jogging venue at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) in Pasay City.
Their amusement attractions are the ones you would not find in other theme parks in the Philippines (one of its closest rivals is the Enchanted Kingdom in Santa Rosa Laguna). It is basically considered part of the Cultural Center Complex having a location address of Sotto cor. Jalandoni Sts. CCP Complex, Roxas Blvd., Pasay City, Philippines 1300 (full contact details below).
Working there a few years back and visiting yearly with the family makes me knowledgeable about the place, the rides and the latest updates on entrance fee, attraction rates, parking and a whole lot more information that you can think of. The family also goes to visit yearly but I must advice you, Christmas season is probably the most date and days of the year you should avoid this theme park even if you have the money to spend for the different new and latest rides and attractions that the original owners Mr. Elizalde and Lisa Macuha under Star Parks Corporation has provided their patrons for amusement fun whole year round.
When I say whole year round, I mean that the amusement park is open to public 7 days a week and 12 months a year except for special holidays like lenten season or Mahal na Araw (Holy Week) and a selective time of January 1 which is New Year's Day. During Halloween, Christmas day and New Year's Eve though, the park is usually open unless the management decides to close it down which will go with an early notice or announcement. They rarely close in this time of the season during December because it their most visited time of the year.
Now let me enlighten you as to my latest knowledge about Star City so I may be able top help people coming over even from far away provinces as stated in a blog's comment section here.
I must admit that although it has been 10 year long since I worked literally inside the amusement park, it still didn't change much when structure is what we talk about. They just added roof covers to all their areas so people can still enjoy and have fun inside even in seasons where heavy rain is on season during the months of May - September. Inside the Star City is still where you can find their old yet most saleable "patok sa takilya" special attractions. They just changed the way they look a bit and change the name from time to time like the "horror house (gabi ng lagim)", "snow world", "wild river", "roller coaster or star flyer", "mummy", "magic carpet", "viking", "giant ferris wheel" "bump car (kids and adult)", "snow white train" and more. Others were newly introduced. As a regular maintenance worker for a local amusement at the Tom’s World amusement center where I used to handle 4 areas as a technician, I am used to going all around the park as part of my job especially during break time.
repairs of all sorts and variety of amusement machines, rides and gadgets in my area
of responsibility. The same people are still in the management of Star City but I would not want to reveal their names anymore for security reasons especially the marketing
department where we go most of the time for promos, time and schedule
of opening and closing of the park, holiday schedules, tour schedules and other amusement needs. Today, all that has changed as Star City no longer allows any other consignment small amusement owners. They now own the whole area and have everything else from the rides to attractions fully controlled by the management and the owners.

Although the official website has noted some simple directions on how to get to Star City via public transport of commute from LRT station in Vito Cruz-Taft, I would like to take time to announce that there is a very big parking space to accommodate those who have their own car or transport vehicle and bring the whole "tropa", "barkada" or family along. Just be careful to position your vehicle in a quite secluded area as I heard (not confirmed) that there was a couple of incident of bad elements sneaking in and scratching or smashing windshield or side mirrors in the area whose location is not within the security guard's point of vision. There are not security cameras in the whole parking area so just be extra careful.
